This comprehensive and thoroughly up-to-date dictionary is an invaluable source of reference and knowledge on the writers and literatures of the western world. Alphabetically arranged and handsomely illustrated, with an emphasis on literature in English - the United States, Great Britain, and Ireland - this volume also covers the great writers and works of other countries, which are known the world over in translation.
Among its 2,000 entries are over 700 references to specific books, plays, dramas, and poems. Entries on writers are in the form of biography with enough analysis of the writer's work, stressing points of style or literary innovation, to guide the reader to a fuller appreciation of our literary heritage.
Also included are articles on literary movements such as the Augustan Age, the Beat Generation, the Humanists, and the Metaphysical Poets. Other entries on literary form such as the alexandrine, allegory, ballads, blank verse, imagism, the novel, nursery rhymes, the ode, parody, and tragedy, to name a few, will prove equally convenient and enlightening.
With authors' portraits and photographs, facsimile extracts of manuscripts and letters, paintings and other illustrations relevant to literature. The Dictionary is at once informative and enriching.
